Vote for the first Quiksilver King of S.N.O.W 2009 at www.king-of-snow.com

Last weekend the best four participants out of 7 rounds have been invited to La Plagne (FRA) to try to stick the last trick - a BS 900° shown by Quiksilver Pro Freddy Austbo!

Benno Postert (AUT), Martin Kalliola (FIN), Niko Lansio (FIN) and Saku Tiilikainen (FIN) are allowed to feel like a snowboard pro for a couple of days. Quiksilver payed everything: flights, accomodations, breakfasts, dinners, lifttickets and drinks. On top our four finalists received a wildcard for Mathieu Crepel´s Invitational “Chromatophobia" which allowed them to ride the La Plagne Superpipe with stars like Markku Koski, Oliver Gittler, Frederik Austbo, Arthur Longo and Christian Haller, only to name a few.

Saturday was the big day for the finalists. They had two hours time, to stick their BS 900° at the reserved Kicker at La Plagne snowpark. Saku was injured, so he couldn´t ride at all, but he told us, he´ll be back next year! Now it´s your turn to vote for the best BS 900°.

Please vote one more time for the best rider to become the first Quiksilver King of S.N.O.W at www.king-of-snow.com

This winter is going to be one giant worldwide session!
Every 14 days one of your favorite Pros will present a trick you have to imitate within two weeks and on a similar obstacle. Once you have sticked and filmed the trick you have to upload it as video file to the King of S.N.O.W platform. Needless to say that you should try to copy the trick with as much style as possible in order to get as many judging points as possible in the worldwide ranking. Because in every single round - that means every 14 days - the most gnarly and styled trick will be rewarded with a massive stuff package.

We will make you rich and famous!
The top four snowboarders that have earned the most judging points after Round 7 will be invited by Mathieu Crépel to their invitational-only event in La Plagne, France - called "Chromatophobia". Quiksilver will assume just everything - flight, accommodation and catering - no matter from where on this planet you have to travel.

Mathieu will present the final trick in the Quiksilver King of S.N.O.W snowpark the four finalists have to copy. A camera team will capture every single trick and finally upload it to www.king-of-snow.com. Afterwards the tricks will be judged one more week for the very last time. The one with the highest score may be pleased about 5.000,- USD cash and worldwide Coverage at all our media partners.

As a special goodie the four lucky finalists will get a wildcard to compete with Mathieu and many other topguns at the Chromatophobia.
